Formula One driver Mark Webber will be the first Australian sportsman to be featured in the Madame Tussauds Sydney museum.
Webber said he was rapt about being included in the wax collection. “It was fun working with the team in London to make a second version of myself, particularly my varying five o’clock shadow,” said Webber.
Webber’s wax-self will be displayed in the sports section of the museum donning a Red Bull Racing suit.
Artists and sculptors are working on the final touches to Webber’s wax figure ahead of the Madame Tussauds Sydney opening in Darling Harbour in early May.
Mark certainly didn’t prove to be a dummy in last weekend’s Australian F1 grand prix, finishing a creditable 4th – his highest placing yet in his home race.
